Sceala Irish Craic Forum Discussion:     Where is whiskey or whisky originally from?

Whiskey or Whisky has been distilled in Ireland for hundreds of years, longer than anywhere else.

Where does the word whisky come from

Ireland
The word comes from the ancient Irish language Uisce Beatha
The Irish language is centuries older than English.

Is whiskey Irish or Scottish?

Really cool video showing the history of Poitin making in Ireland, also showing that Whiskey is Irish not Scottish.
Whiskey is Irish, the word itself is from the Irish Gaelic language and whiskey was first distilled by the Irish.
It's likely that Irish christian missionary monks brought the distilling techniques of whiskey to Scotland.

Scotland is much influence by Ireland, Gaels from Ireland and Norse made the modern nation of Scotland.
Argyll for example means East Gael. Argyll is of ancient origin, and corresponds to most of the part of the ancient kingdom of Dál Riata.

The Dal Riada or Dál Riatans etc and different spellings are to all to do with ancient powerful immigrants from Ireland who basically founded the modern nation of Scotland,.

So not only did the Irish invent Whiskey but it can be said invented the Scots themselves.

Latin sources often referred to the inhabitants of Dál Riata as Scots (Scoti), a name originally used by Roman and Greek writers for the Irish Gaels who raided and colonized Roman Britain.

Who invented whiskey Irish or Scottish?

The Irish invented whiskey or whisky.

Is whiskey American or British?
Neither as Whiskey was Irish.

whiskey was first distilled in Ireland by native Irish and they did so long before, centuries before either pre Columbus American or British even existed.
The Hanoverians (Germanic families who make up most of the supposed royal families across modern Europe) invented british prior to the 19th century forced union of Ireland with britain into a supposed 'united kingdom'.
